Legendary Italian designer Giorgio Armani has become the proud owner of one of the most beautiful Greek islands – Scorpios. The deal cost the fashion designer 191 million dollars. The Scorpio Island is located at a short distance off the coast of Lefkada.

Former owner of the island, located in the Ionian Sea, was Athina Onassis Roussel, the only surviving descendant of her grandfather Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis. Aristotle had bought this island in 1968 to woo the ex first lady of US Jacqueline Kennedy. It is noteworthy that the people who were on the list of prospective buyers included the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, as well as Microsoft founder Bill Gates and singer Madonna.

Several months ago, Armani opened his first hotel. It is in the highest building in the world – skyscraper Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Armani Hotel has 144 luxurious rooms and is loaded with several shops, cafes and restaurants.
